Pagid RS19's on the street:
Noise: Think school bus on steroids. Really noisy once they're bedded in and well used.
Dust: not bad, really.
Modulation: My wife refuses to drive the car with them on. Nose-bleed inducing if someone cuts you off and you tag the pedal in a hurry. Phenomenal at speed when hot.
Cost: $800 for both axles. I would NOT mix them with anything else.
Rotors: you need factory rotors with part numbers ending with "38x" where "x" is 5, 6, 7 or 8 depending on which corner you look at. You can see the numbers stamped into the rotor centers by looking through the wheels.
Other notes: the rears work really hard on the track if you don't turn DSC to M-dynamic mode.
OEM sport pads are hard to get and expensive. I priced them at $1500 in Canada, "not available" in the USA.
